Dr Kostas Kouriatis

I am a Counselling Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a practitioner psychologist and  the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Division of Counselling Psychology as a chartered psychologist. I am also registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).

 

Experience

I currently work in private practice. My clinical experience is diverse, as I have worked in a Community Mental Health Team, a Specialist Psychotherapy Department, a Community Health Psychology Service and a University Counselling Centre. Within the clinical settings I have worked, I have offered integrative, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), EMDR, person-centred, psychodynamic, and family-systemic therapy within different session frameworks (short-term and long-term). I have provided my services to people with a wide range of emotional and psychological difficulties, as well as to individuals who have wanted to engage in therapy to promote their personal development.

I have also worked as a University Lecturer for the University of East London and Visiting Lecturer for the City University of London.
